Art & Synaesthesia Workshop with resident dance artist Stephanie Scheubeck and her group Sound & Colour Production.

This multi art form workshop centres around synaesthesia, a fascinating neurological phenomenon where the senses blend. The workshop is open to all levels of experience in art and dance. Come along & let’s boost our creativity!

MOVE it * SENSE it * DRAW it!

Dance, imagery, sound, drawing and painting enrich one another in a creative exchange. Through somatic movement we tune into our sensory perception, let vivid imageries arise stimulated by music and sounds which we will translate into creative drawings and paintings. In vibrant improvisations we translate the paintings and drawings into dance.

Let´s meet in a respectful and vibrant verbal and artistic exchange on perception, expression - diversity!

The workshop is open to participants of diverse backgrounds in movement, dance, fine art and music. It specifically invites participants who are new to this kind of work and who are interested in exploring movement, sensory perception, sound, drawing and neurodiversity in a vibrant workshop.

This class develops good posture, balance, flexibility, coordination, spatial awareness, and rhythm inherent both to Ballet as well as to a healthy body and mind. Ballet is not only a beautiful dance discipline. It also promotes the development of mental concentration and memory recall, together with body toning, strengthening and elongation of the muscular structure. You will learn basic ballet positions and patterns in a traditional structured class, consisting of a warm up, barre and centre exercises, and finally, a relaxing warm down routine incorporating improvised movements to music.

The aim of these new classes is to provide an opportunity for participants to develop the skill and confidence to dance with ease.

Classes include an introduction to floor-work, partner-work, and improvisation. With space to develop mind/body coordination as well as inner listening, students will be comfortable as first-time dancers or those coming back to movement after a long break. Each session builds on a movement sequence which is mastered by the end of the 6 week period. The teacher facilitates a relaxing yet exciting environment where the body's natural intuition and playfulness will be explored and appreciated.

This class will focus on movement creation through play, improvisation and freestyle. Rachel shares techniques she has researched and learned to provide structured improvisations (contemporary) and a freestyle environment (urban styles). Every class is different, building skills consistently, but in different ways. Dancers develop skills around body-awareness and perception, along with awareness of space and people around them. Through group improvisations, working in small groups and pairs, the class focuses on moving, expressing through movement and, of course, having fun! This class is suitable for boys and girls of any ability.
